College Partnerships

In 1937, Addition Financial was founded by educators. Decades later, we still haven’t forgotten our commitment to supporting students. Today, we continue to support education by living our mission to bring financial education to everyone. Every challenge. Every dream. Every day. Count us in.

Special benefits for college students

Addition Financial is the official financial institution of the UCF Knights, Seminole State, and Valencia College. That means students get special perks when they bank with us.

  • On campus branches
  • On campus ATMs
  • Shared branching option
  • Exclusive debit cards
  • Financial literacy programs

Student Checking

We know how challenging finances can be in college. That’s why we designed our Student Checking account specifically for your needs. And we’ve waived the membership and minimum share balance fee for 5 years from the date of account opening.

Scholarship opportunities

If you’re a member who is a high school student looking for funding for your first year of college or if you’re going to earn a Master’s degree, you’re eligible to apply for our Joseph A. Melbourne, Jr. annual scholarship. Each year, we award six undergraduate applicants $10,000 each. We also select two Master’s applicants to receive $2,500 each. 

Express your school pride

Students from Seminole State and UCF have the option to rep their schools every time they shop with our affinity debit cards. Every time you make a purchase with your card, we’ll donate to the athletics program at the University of Central Florida or the foundation at Seminole State College. We’re proud to contribute just a little bit to what makes your school go far and charge on.

Our first UCF campus branch opened in 1971, and we've been chanting "Charge On" ever since. The Addition Financial Arena is set right at the end of Memory Mall, so we're always involved in campus life. Whether you're just buying a coffee at Cafe Bustelo® or you're trying to secure funds for your education, we have your back. (We're like the Knugget to your Pegasus.)
